Click on the Start button, then click on Control Panel from the right-hand side to delve into your computer's settings. From the Control Panel, click on Sound and Audio Devices to bring up your audio settings. Check the Place volume icon in the taskbar and then click Apply. You should now be able to see your volume icon from the taskbar again.

SOURCE: task bar displays

Hello,

Windows usually hides the task bar icons you have not used recently.
If that is the case, you must have a small left arrow < at the left of the last icon displayed. Click that arrow and the hidden icons will be displayed for a short while.

Usually the safely remove hardware is present (shown or hidden) whenever there is a removable equipement.

For the local or dial up connection, you can configure your computer to display it on the task bar. Here is how to do it in Windows XP

1. Press the Start button on the left, choose Connect To > Show all connections. You will see all your connections, each one symbolized by an icon.
2. Point the mouse cursor to the one you want, Right Click Mouse button, then Properties.
3 Under the General Tab, put a check mark in Show icon in notification area when connected
4. Click OK.

Hope it helps

SOURCE: my sound icon is missing from my task bar

Go to Run and from run, type in devmgmt.msc and click ok. Scroll down to sound and see if you have any items with a yellow exclamation beside it. If so, you will need to install the audio driver for the device. If you still do not find the solution to your answer then visit http://www.vtechsquad.com/ and get the maximum out of it...

I get picture on Viber laptop, but no sound. How do I get speakers to work and where can I find the speakers.


Check to see if you a speaker icon in the lower r/h side of the task-bar down by the clock.
If the icon is not there right click on a blank area of the task-bar and left click 'properties'
Left click 'customize'
Scroll down to 'Volume' and select 'Show icon and notifications "
Click 'OK'
Close the 2 properties pop-ups.
Right click on the speaker icon and select 'playback devices'
The 'sound' pop up will appear showing whatever you have connected ( speakers or headset etc)
Make sure the speakers are set as default if you have more than one sound device connected.
The speakers should have a green tick (check ) when they are ready to use
Right click on the speaker icon and select 'Open volume mixer"
Check that the volume slider is above 50% and the speakers are not muted (shown as a red no-entry sign on the speaker icons at the bottom of the sliders' If muted click on the slider speaker icon.
Right click on the speaker icon and select 'playback devices' Put the cursor on the blue graph to the right of the icon, right click and select 'test' All being well the computer speakers will respond.

Can't get sound to work


Which OS are you using. Anyhow on the task bar see if the speaker icon is crossed, if yes click on it and deselect mute. If not seen then press left arrow on the task bar, you will find speaker icon, unmute it.
See whether the speaker connection is properly plugged into the green socket marked Output.

How can I stop my x-530 speakers popping?


Hello,

Right click on the task bar --- then select 'properties' ----- In the task window, click on the 'Customize tab' ----- Now select the icon for your X 530 Speakers and set its status as 'always hide'.

This should avoid the popping up of the speaker icon.

Please let me know if this does not work for you.

Regards,

My polk audio speakers from a prior hp computer are very, very quiet on my new compaq system. what can i do?


The audio setting in your new computer is set to low level. Right click on the speaker button at the right hand bottom corner of your task bar,Then open the volume control from there. push the slider up in the volume control and also on the wave.You can push the slider up for the CD player as well as PC speaker also if any of these are also kept at a low level. If you do not have a speaker icon in the task bar, open control panel,(click on start and you will see the control panel selection, double click on it) and double click on sound and audio devices. Under device volume, push the slider from low to high. while you are here you can click on "place volume icon in the task bar" You can also click "advanced" and select the appropriate speakers here, like desktop stereo speakers or surround sound or whatever suits your speaker. click ok to save this and that is it.

Not playing


the volume control does give you more control on the volume of the speakers but yea if you just get a cable going from one end to the other and it doesnt have a volume control it will work no problem just control the volume from the task bar, it will work i can guarantee that because i have the same speakers and i tried it out and works perfectly fine, you cant tell the difference because there isnt one just control from task bar!
